Drove way out of town to see this place. The gates were locked. There were a couple of planes sitting out in a field. I didn't see much of anything else.More

Silver Wings airfield is a 1900' grass strip, so it is an exact match to the WWI era of flight training cadets! Errol is quite knowledgeable, and was a true joy to learn about this period of aviation history.
